Hello,
It depends on what time you will be at the station, day or night? We arrived at the station in the early hours and was surprised to find it closed with just a few people lying on the floor outside. As time went on more and more people came but we still weren't allowed in the station building until a couple of hours later, it was blocked off by a barrier and had security guards patrolling. As we didn't have a ticket and the train that we hoped to get at around 7am was delayed and we were only travelling to Mysore we decided to get a private bus instead. Not sure if this is a regular thing, the station closing, but we have never come across it in India before or since then!

what time do you arrive in Bangalore. with 6hrs you can visit Mantri Mall which is less than 2kms from the Bangalore city railway station. I am from Bangalore and frequent traveler in train, I have never checked about the cloak roam. If you are carrying your laptop you can connect to internet for free via Blu-fi connection (Bluetooth based). You need to send an SMS and the numbers are displayed across railway station. You need to reconnect every one hour.

Every major Railway Station in India does have Cloak Room attached to it. Bangalore is no exception. Bangalore City Junction is one of the best managed/equipped in the country and I'm sure it has Cloak Room. Besides Cloak Room, it has Retiring Rooms also. I hope this answers your quarry.

yes, SBC has a cloakroom - i have used it in Dec 2010 & it looked like a very permanent setup.
regarding suggestions, are you looking for something to do in bangalore or at the station? if at station, you could check for a retiring room to take a nap. if in bangalore, it would help if you post the timing & day...

when you leave your luggage at the cloakroom check what times they shut-some may shut for half an hour for lunch and tea etc.

1500 hrs is too late for covering any museums properly. if you are on time or early, you can take an auto to cover cubbon park & the museums/galleries that are open upto 1700 hrs, vitm is open upto 1800 hrs. after that, you can decide to go to musical fountain near the planetarium where they have a late evening show. subsequently dinner outside followed by trip back to station is feasible.
